Elliott is one month old!
I can't believe this little man has been in my life that long.
I can tell he's feeling better and better about life on Earth - he's sleeping more, eating well, and now has clearer vision.
He showers with Dad:
I am also feeling better about being a mom. I have figured out what to expect from a normal day, how to get a few things done, and how to relax on the couch for hours on end (it's more difficult than it sounds).

Of course I loved Elliott right at first, but now that we have bonded more, I can tell that I feel differently. Every time I look at him, my heart melts. I can't imagine anything more adorable or wonderful. I find myself hoping he's having a good day and feeling happy!
